Art night a flop at strip bar
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

BOISE Art night at Erotic City in Boise was a bust.

Police raided the strip club last night for violating the Idaho capital's nudity ordinance. The law requires minimal cover for dancers unless they're involved in a performance with "serious artistic merit."

To get around that, the bar distributed sketch pads and pencils to patrons twice a week.

But police say that didn't fool anybody. If the models were posing, that would be one thing, says a spokeswoman. But she says, "These women weren't posing. They were dancing."

Three dancers got misdemeanor citations, but were not arrested.
